conect to computer go to tomtom web site call them. they will have to help you remove all maps from gps.then you will have to reinstall them. it took me 4 days and the right person but it worked.if you do not have usb conection to computer it will not work.
You can get free shared updates from the users when you install the Tom Tom Home Software, but to update the map with the TomTom approved information, you will have to pay, unfortunately. So far, the people-uploaded maps have helped me immensely, though.
There was an old Tom Tom Home (1.5 I think) and it is now Tom Tom HOME 2. If the icon has a little inward-facing arrow on the left-hand, lower corner then it is only a shortcut and you can safely delete them. You can always start the program by using Start, All Programs, Tom Tom etc.
Create a Restore point so you can undo the following changes and call it something like 'Pre Tom Tom HOME 2 update'.
TOM Tom no charge and will not turn on leave on charge for two hours, then with the SD card out hold down the reset button at the back of unit for ten seconds and then the 'on' switch for ten seconds. STEP 1
Connect your TomTom to your computer
via USB and open up your Windows Explorer and go to the drive. (It will be listed as TOMTOM (E) or some other drive letter).
Copy the Yellow Folders one by one to your PC. Ideally, save all the folders under a new folder that you name.
You may find that the folder ttntools and gns may not be copied. This is o.k. if they aren't.
Format your Tomtom via MY Computer.
Copy the Yellow Folders from the backup
you made in STEP 1 back to the TomTom.
Open TomTom Home
Click on Upate Now.
Install the latest update onto your TomTom.
Once installed, switch your TomTom off, then disconnect if from the PC.
Thats it. From now on, make a full backup using TomTom Home prior to any updates.
Also note, that copying all the files will take some time.
